    I really hope they come out with the 5.1.1 update soon for the n900t and not skip it all together. Samsung unfortunately has a reputation of doing that far too often, which leaves people pissed off and seeking a different phone manufacturer!

    I’ve been reading that the Note 3 SM-N900t was suppose to receive the 5.1.1 update in July/August.
    Here we are Half way through September and no update yet.
    Our Note 3 locks up, slow to respond on various apps etc….
    When is the update going to happen or are we not going to be receiving the update?
    Just let the Note 3 customers know what’s happening!

    Thank you
